WHITE MOUNTAINS, NEW HAMPSHIRE
In a historic 1840 building just outside ski-crazed North Conway midtown in the upper east White Mountain region, well-respected MOAT MOUNTAIN SMOKE HOUSE & BREWING has enclosed side entry patio to mid-sized bar (with multiple TV’s) and large dining facility (visited December ’06).
It was 9 PM when I got to Moat Mountain and my kids were tired so I only bought growlers of bittersweet barley-roasted mocha-nutty caramel-hopped coffee-finishing Square Tail Stout and coarsely nutty maple-sapped coffee-mocha-soured Bear Peak Brown.
But got to suck down pints of buttery nut-roasted orange-burnt pumpkin-lined Opa’s Octoberfest and orange rind-embittered coriander-spiced gourd-cushioned KA Belgian Double before heading out New Year’s Eve.
Website showed different brews then those mentioned as seasonals and year-round, December 2010.
